Final event of kleine baumeister’s project RAUM.Erfahrungen (spatial experience)
RAUM.Erfahrungen was a pilot project by kleine baumeister in early education that focused on spatial didactics and the sensuous perception of space with eight Berlin day care centres that took place from September 2009 until September 2010 an was funded by the Berlin Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung (municipal grant for cultural education). In this project, children, professional day care teachers, and their colleagues in training were given an access to appreciate the sensual and aesthetic qualities of living. Active perception processes were stimulated. Joint spatial experiments facilitated explorations of different uses, light, colour, material, and space from the perspectives all participants. This allowed for conclusions on the general importance of having suitable spaces for children.
